RCMP - Altercation Sends 2 Men to Hospital - Update #4

File: 2017 - 1568595

Update #4 - NOTICE TO CORRECT

St. Albert RCMP want to reaffirm that the incident where two adult men were taken to hospital involved men over the age of eighteen.  Following the updated release earlier today, St. Albert RCMP have been advised that incorrect information continues to be reported, alleging a 'teenage boy was sent to hospital with life threatening injuries'. This is not correct. St. Albert RCMP can advise that the two adult men are aged 33 years and the accused, 28 year old Daniel TRUONG were the only two involved in the altercation.  


Update #3:

St. Albert RCMP General Investigation Section (GIS) has conducted an extensive investigation into the report of incident on November 19th, 2017 that resulted in two men going to hospital.
 
Investigators have now determined that the incident involved a serious assault that has now led to multiple charges against a 28 year old St. Albert male.
 
Twenty eight year old Daniel TRUONG of St. Albert is facing the following charges :

  • Attempted Murder
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Possession of weapon for dangerous purpose
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking
  • Possession of a Controlled substance

TRUONG was remanded into custody and will appear at the St. Albert Provincial Court on December 11th, 2017.
 
The accused and the victim are known to each other. Police are confident that the victim was targeted, that this was not a random act and that the public is not at risk.


Update #2:

St. Albert RCMP continue to investigate this incident and have had initial conversations with the two adult men, that were known to each other, and that were involved in the incident. The investigation continues to be a priority to St. Albert RCMP, as is the safety of our community.
